In his famous essay “Nature,” Ralph Waldo Emerson explains that language originated in nature, that a word is a symbol of something in nature. As Emerson opines, “Thus is nature an interpreter, by whose means man converses with his fellow men. A man’s power to connect his thought with its proper symbol, and so to utter it, depends on the simplicity of his character, that is, upon his love of truth and his desire to communicate it without loss.” As if he were anticipating the problems of today, Emerson declares “The corruption of man is followed by the corruption of language.” There are so many indications that our language today is being corrupted and that we are not on friendly terms with truth.

PEORIA — Several individuals and families were affected by the two pressure cooker bombs that exploded during the Boston Marathon on April 13. 

Perhaps, no family was affected greater than the Richard family. As a result of the bombings, 8-year-old Martin Richard died instantly. Martin’s mother Denise lost an eye and had serious brain trauma after suffering a blow to the head, while 7-year-old Jane Martin lost both of her legs and remains in an intensive care unit. In addition to losing hearing and suffering from leg wounds from shrapnel, the father, Bill Martin, has major funeral and hospital expenses to finance. Only the family’s  12-year-old son, Henry, who was walking behind a tree when the bomb went off, was uninjured.

In the last year, Blackberry Farm has undergone a magical transformation. In fact, this iconic landmark has achieved something that’s eluded many of us.

Yes, Blackberry Farm has found a way to look younger, even as it grows older.

A modern makeover completed last year has brought a series of exciting additions and improvements at ol’ Blackberry, akin to polishing a nostalgic jewel.

Tiny creatures are a natural wonder right here at home

Niagara Falls. Devil’s Tower. Mammoth Cave. Old Faithful.

These natural wonders of the United States are so famous, they hardly need explanation. They’re big. They’re unique. They’re really, really old. And each year people flock by the millions to see them.

Then there are those natural wonders that are a little less illustrious. Like, for instance, the little critters I found stuck to my garage doors just this past Tuesday.
